Acoustic and Electrophysiologic Correlates of Stuttering and Early Developmental Reactions
Observations made over the past thirty years will be presented in defense of the contention that over-inclusive definitions and descriptions of stuttering continue to confound theory, research, and therapy related to the disorder. At particular issue in this position chapter is whether phonatory disturbance is a correlate of stuttering or a consequential reaction to stuttering. The present discussion will focus on some attempts to verify longitudinal observations of speech behaviors found to precede phonatory-onset disturbance in stuttering children.
